Head of Family Law of PKWA Law Practice Lim Chong Boon was quoted in the Straits Times article titled “More divorcing parents using supervised visits to see their children”. The article was first published on 1 April 2019.
The article shares with readers how the supervised visitation and exchange programme by the Family Justice Courts and the Ministry of Social and Family Development is helping to rebuild broken parent-child relationships.
Below is an excerpt from the article which features comments from Lim Chong Boon:
Family lawyers and social workers interviewed say that supervised visits are effective for several reasons.
The presence of a neutral third party, in the form of a counsellor, puts both the feuding parents at ease as they know the counsellor is there to protect the child’s welfare.
“… The counsellors also mitigate the distrust between the couple and allay their concerns, said lawyer Lim Chong Boon of PKWA Law Practice.”
